OPHS hosts microchip/license clinic, collar exchange

The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society will host a Microchip/License Clinic and Collar Exchange from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, March 18.

Home Again microchips will be available for $20 including registration; OPHS normally charges $35 for a microchip and registration. Microchips can help a lost animal find its way home. A scanner reads the number on the chip which links to the owner’s information.

Dogs and cats living in Clallam County, City of Sequim and the City of Port Angeles are legally required to be licensed. At the clinic, annual licenses will be available for just $5 when getting an animal microchipped. The same price applies to animals already chipped and spayed or neutered. The regular cost for an annual license is $10.

Lifetime licenses also will be available at the clinic for $20 if the pet also is getting a microchip and is spayed or neutered or if the pet already is chipped and spayed/neutered. The regular cost for a lifetime license is $50.

A Heavy Metal Collar Exchange also will take place. The shelter’s behaviorist will fit dogs with a no-pull harness or head halter and teach the owner how to use it in exchange for any prong, pinch, choke or shock collar. The no-pull devices are more effective and are safer for both the dog and owner, OPHS officials say. Gently used harnesses or halters will be available at no-cost while supplies last or owners can purchase a new one with proceeds going to OPHS.

The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society has maintained an active presence in the community since 1947. The society shelters and cares for animals of all types. A private, nonprofit corporation, the society is financed primarily by private donations and gifts. No animals are turned away and annually 1,500-2,000 animals pass through the doors of the facility.
